Vote 4 Me

Jordan Gray was a student of mine during the ' Rap & Hip-Hop Change The World ' summer experience at LACM. He showed a great deal of passion and commitment to his music career. He is a talented individual with big dreams and the work ethic to achieve them. - Mike Xavier ( Artist / Guest Instructor )

The Rap & Hip-Hop program runs concurrently with the LACM Summer Xperience Songwriting and Advanced Production program(s). The Rap & Hip-Hop Program took us through classes with a specific focus on individualized songwriting and production coaching to produce music that can have a positive message / impact on the world. I was one of the only among my peers that knew how to produce as well as song-write.

Jordan WINGS Program

Jordan not only displayed a high level of all three qualities (talent/leadership/character), but also stood out in the program. The combination of skills and traits I've mentioned ultimately allow Jordan to consistently make the people and organizations around him, better.

- Caleb Luber | Founder , C.E.O of Triple Threat Mentoring 

The WINGS program is an organization facilitated by Triple Threat Mentoring and sponsored by Jordan. I was invited to take part in this program on behalf of YMAN to participate in design a shirt that will be sold as a Jordan Brand shirt in the Jump-man Store on Broadway in Los Angeles.

Digital Dreamers Academy

As a talented artist he graduated from our STEM and Music program where he recorded and produced a music single and accompanying music video. I can say without a doubt that he will accomplish much in whatever he sets his mind to. 

- Isabella Adan Chavez | Director of Programs,Youth Mentoring Action Network

This was a six-week program held in the Apple Store in Victoria Gardens. In this program, the students had access to up to date technology to produce and make music, as well as being accompanied by fellow artist and apple employees. At the end of the program, we were greeted by industry professionals and got the chance to showcase the work we've completed over the course of the program. My work and proficient hardworking attitude got me an invitation to co lead the next Digital Dreamers class for the year of 2020.
